Donald Trump Says Something in Koran Teaches a ‘Very Negative Vibe’

12 April 2011 General 13 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Donald Trump expresses concern about the teachings of the Koran saying, “There’s something there that teaches some very negative vibe.”

Watch below. The transcription is below as well.

I spoke with Trump in New York a few days ago. My full six-minute piece aired across the country on “The 700 Club” this morning. If you missed it, you can watch it again tonight at 11 p.m. on the ABC Family Channel or here anytime of day.

Trump will also be the sole focus of this week’s 30-minute Brody File Show where you can see a lot more of the interview. (The show will be released Wednesday morning along with more, never-before-seen clips)


David Brody: Radical Islam: to Evangelicals, this is a bread and butter issue. You said there’s a Muslim problem in this country. What do you mean by that exactly?

Donald Trump: Bill O’Reilly asked me is there a Muslim problem? And I said absolutely, yes. In fact I went a step further. I said I didn’t see Swedish people knocking down the World Trade Center. It was very interesting. I thought that was going to be a controversial statement and somebody, I think it was Dennis Miller introduced me, he was doing like an analysis of me, he said, I love it.

The guy said what the truth is. He didn’t mince his words. He didn’t say, ‘Oh, gee, no there’s not a Muslim problem, everybody’s wonderful.’ And by the way, many, many, most Muslims are wonderful people, but is there a Muslim problem? Look what’s happening. Look what happened right here in my city with the World Trade Center and lots of other places.

So I said it and I thought it was going to be very controversial but actually it was very well received. I think people want the truth. I think they’re tired of politicians. They’re tired of politically correct stuff.

I mean I could have said, ‘Oh absolutely not Bill, there’s no Muslim problem, everything is wonderful, just forget about the World Trade Center.’ But you have to speak the truth. We’re so politically correct that this country is falling apart.

Brody: With some evangelicals there are some problems with the teachings of the Koran. Do you have concerns about the Koran?”

Trump: Well, I’ll tell you what. The Koran is very interesting. A lot of people say it teaches love and there is a very big group of people who really understand the Koran far better than I do. I’m certainly not an expert, to put it mildly. But there’s something there that teaches some very negative vibe.

I mean things are happening, when you look at people blowing up all over the streets that are in some of the countries over in the Middle East, just blowing up a super market with not even soldiers, just people, when 250 people die in a super market that are shopping, where people die in a store or in a street. There’s a lot of hatred there that’s some place.

Now I don’t know if that’s from the Koran. I don’t know if that’s from some place else. But there’s tremendous hatred out there that I’ve never seen anything like it.

So, you have two views. You have the view that the Koran is all about love and then you have the view that the Koran is, that there’s a lot of hate in the Koran.

Original post: Donald Trump Says Something in Koran Teaches a ‘Very Negative Vibe’


  1. Wow, Donald………have you ever even looked at the Bible??????? And you’re a “birther” too! What more could we want in a president? Some proof that there is a brain underneath that mess on top of you head?

  2. We have heard many negative things; for example, selling daughters at a tender age to abusive husbands who may already be married. But let us not forget, these things are mentioned in the Bible as if it is okay to be a patriarch in olden times with multiple wives and ‘obedient’ female servants. What about a Christianity that preaches peace and then gets hijacked by warmongers not just in the United States since ‘9/11’ but going all the way back to the year 1090 and the first Crusades? I think Jesus said something about first criticizing one’s own self before criticizing one’s neighbor.

  3. I still think he’s trolling the media with this whole ‘running for president’ thing. I mean, he said on The View that he wanted to tax other countries. C’mon, the guy can’t be serious.

  4. Please remember…..

    You must weigh ALL birthers’ comments with several pounds of salt…..!!

  5. i doubt that he even know what Koran really is.

  6. Yes the Old Testament of the Bible has some violent stuff in it. The only problem is I haven’t seen Americans killing in the name of the Old Testament lately. I also haven’t seen anyone killing in the name of Jesus in the past 300 years.

    The same can’t be said for the Koran.

  7. I think there is a Donald Trump problem…

  8. Read Leviticus, Donald. It’s in the Old Testament. Ever flipped through that?

  9. Moses.

  10. sadams:

    Sadly, some have misinterpreted the Holy Qur’an an have committed some un-Islamic actions. That is not the fault of the Holy Qur’an or Islam.

    Likewise, I don’t blame Christianity for the Waco or Jonestown incidences either….

  11. Better stated, if asked, “Is there a ‘Muslim problem’?”

    A MUCH better & more accurate answer would be:

    “No! But there IS a terrorist problem….and it has nothing to do with Islam!”

    Then he could site 9/11 and OKC and other terrorist incidents!

    But of course the verbiage used by Trump was in line with the CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) line of attack on Islam and the Qur’an, so that makes them happy….

  12. It’s more like fear and hatred against a religion than anything else. Since Islam is against Capitalism which is keeping people like trump in power and promotes charity and distribute extra money and gives equal power to every one therefore he would oppose it anyway. Offcourse Quran is negative Vibes against Capitalists like Donald Trump. One of my blog posts about rising Islamophobia in US:

  13. deuceprez, you don’t see a problem with a religion that advocates flogging people and cuting off people’s hands?

    adnan, you should watch “it’s a wonderful life” sometime
